HC Deb 28 May 1936 vol 312 cc2183-4
58. Mr. HOPKIN

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the importance of the latest methods of grass drying to dairy farmers; and whether, in view of the high cost of the implements required, he will consider giving facilities to farmers for borrowing money to buy dryers, loaders, mowers, and tractors for this new process?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. In reply to the second part, I do not think it is necessary to propose to the House that the existing credit facilities available to agriculturists should be increased for the purpose suggested by the hon. Member.
